We've had it for a couple of weeks and have been to two somewhat local campgrounds here in Tulsa, OK to get it outfitted up and do a "dealer punchlist". So far, only minor minimal issues and I've got it back at the dealer getting those ironed out as well as getting a rear wireless camera installed.
Hope to gain some insights and "tips and tricks" to make our trips more enjoyable.
Thanks for allowing me to be a part of the forum.
#1 tip: Checklist. This would be anything from from grocery lists, menu planning, To-Do list, breaking camp, etc.
#2 tip: I found keeping things simple works well for me. It also means less work and less to worry about.
#3 tip: Break a big job into smaller tasks. Can you load some items into the truck a day or two ahead of time? Keep the first night dinner easy - maybe something that can be warmed up. Have the big BBQ the following night when you are not worn out from traveling.
#4 tip: Don't sweat the small stuff. There's little that you cannot recover from. If something doesn't go as planned it will likely make for a good story to share around the camp fire later on.
Great choice for "Living within my means" and camping for one...
